National Geographic - The Invisible World (1979) Crystallization Process Close Up

This close up film of the crystallization process is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I mean, this is a real film of a physical process. Not an animation! 

The whole film is pretty amazing, but it does have some scary moments (there are as many creatures living on your body as there are people on earth!).

The Creatures of Yes review Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

I worked on this video for a pretty long time. By the end I was like "is this even good!?". But I'm pretty happy with it. The Creators Project gave us a nice write up about it:

Check it out and let me know what you think. Would C.S. Lewis have been happy with this review?

Little Things

Gosh, this is the longest I've gone without posting since the very beginning. Sorry readers, if you're still out there. So much going on in my life, it makes me wonder if this blog was filling some void for all those years.

R.I.P. Isao Tomita

I found some of his records at a thrift store when I was a kid and have been a fan ever since. There's some special sort of magic in his music. Sad to see him go.

Creatures of Yes - Tom

I was a little ambivalent about putting out such a stripped down episode of Creatures of Yes. But then I thought maybe it was a nice breather and a little contrast to the rest of the videos in the series. I think it's also a nice introduction to Tom, who we would need a little one on one time with to really get to know him. Most of the other characters get in there naturally, but he's a bit more reserved.

Time in a Bottle

Well, gosh! I don't remember seeing this as a kid on the Muppet Show. Maybe it wouldn't resonate so much with a little kid, but watching it now in middle age - I think it's possibly the most brilliant thing I've ever seen Jim Henson do. It's super sad and kind of funny at the same time. And I love all the technical elements - stirring actual liquids, then drinking them! The whole set is so intricate and kinetic. Love it.

Also - sorry about so many videos these days! Every post is a video! I wonder if it has anything to do with my journey into the world of video production? Probably. Anyway, I'll try to at least write something in each post.


This song is incredible! I guess I've heard it before, but... I don't know. I love it.
